Double Fudge Coca Cola Cake (Cracker Barrel Copy Cat)






While my husband was out of town last week ( he was in Arkansas,), I took the kids out to dinner for a treat at Cracker Barrel. We get lonely without Daddy  around, so it's nice to have some fun. During dinner, my middle daughter kept saying how hungry she was, so I let the kids order dessert. She decided on Double Fudge Coca Cola cake with vanilla ice cream. We all got a taste and we fell in love! I found the recipe when we got home and made it. It turned out great. It's so moist and the icing is irresistable. I hope you get a chance to make this one.
